So, I have to start out by saying that I had never actually completed a Zendala before prepping for the class on April 24th. Yes, even when I was in Rhode Island becoming a CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher), I had only done a partial tile. As with the black tiles, they intimidated me a little bit. I knew I couldn't just wing it when teaching a class, so I settled in with my black micron 01, my graphite pencil, my tortillon and a couple of Zendalas.
I looked at some of the beautiful work others were doing online and started to think about my lesson plan, then I remembered that Molly created a lesson plan for Zendalas, so I scurried on over to HQ, zentangle.com. I followed her lesson with a few alterations and lo and behold, I had created not one, but two Zendalas and they were awesome!
The students really loved creating their own Zendalas and I think they turned out beautifully! Below, you can see the first tiles that they created.
By the way, ladies, if you have finished your second tile, please share it with me so I can add it to this post!
Keep Calm and Tangle On!
As you meander about, search for topic that incorporates your picked shading, and check whether you can make an organization out of it (or out of part of it). For instance, while visiting any city, work with the shading "yellow". Each time you see something that is yellow, instead of simply stroll by it, stop and study it for a couple of moments (or minutes), and see what you can do with it.
